On Friday 20th, I supported a new Private Members Bill to ‘Protect the Protectors’.
The Bill proposes tougher sentences for those who assault emergency services, and will deter the minority of people who think it’s okay to attack our nurses, police officers and fire fighters and others as they do their duty.
Our emergency services do an incredible job looking after us all, but it’s time we did our bit to look after them.
I’ll be continuing to support the Bill and doing my best to ensure it becomes law, so that we can properly Protect the Protectors.
